TRAFFIC ALONG THIS ROUTE
From Interstate 15, take exit 16 east on Highway 9 for 12.6 miles. Cross the bridge in La Verkin until you reach the 90° right hand turn at a Maverick gas station. This is the beginning of the Zion Connector route.
This route is a challenging climb that zigzags up the side of a butte to reach the small town of Virgin. It’s only a short connecter route to get from La Verkin up to the route that goes into Zion Canyon or Kolob Terrace. This route is mainly used by those doing a much longer ride from St. George to Zion.
